Once the sensors warmed up or bike revved up out of closed loop problem went away, but not initially... A dual setup would likely cause same thing. Poor idle/unable to maintain idle since the bike is only reading A/F for one cylinder rather than two.

I ended up re-flashing the ecu and eliminating the o2 sensors, which solved issue.
I'm talking about your statement that you have to go 2-1-2 because you would have problems reading the A/F ratio on just one cylinder.

What difference should that make if the cylinders are not controlled individually anyway? The A/F ratio should be the same on a parallel twin, same flow of air, exhaust length etc.
